Vacation Pay After Layoff in California

My California company laid off employees on January 3rd, including me. I was given holiday pay for January 2nd. Since we are given 20 days vacation in a calendar year, should I be paid out those 20 vacation days pay for 2017?

It depends on the policy for how vacation time is accrued. If you had 20 days on the books as of January 1, then you should be paid for those days. If you accrue vacation incrementally over the year, then you would only have a claim for whatever was accrued as of January 1.
